This content gallery loads content progressively using AJAX and uses CSS3 transitions for animation and positioning. The optional web service providing the content is based on PHP, but the concept can be easily reproduced in other languages.

Try the demo.

How to include the script

The stylesheet is best included in the header of the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/gallery.css"/>

This include can be added to the header or placed inline before the script is invoked.

<script src="./js/gallery.js"></script>

Using vanilla JavaScript

var gallery = new Gallery( document.getElementById('id'), {
	'aspectRatio' : 1,
	'carouselNames' : ['gallery_carousel_farleft', 'gallery_carousel_left', 'gallery_carousel_centre', 'gallery_carousel_right', 'gallery_carousel_farright'],
	'pinboardNames' : ['gallery_pinboard_left', 'gallery_pinboard_right', 'gallery_pinboard_loading'],
	'pagerLabels' : ['I', 'II', 'III', 'IV', 'V'],
	'rowOffset' : 18,
	'pinboardOffset' : 0,
	'fetchScrollBottom' : 100,
	'fetchTreshold' : 3,
	'fetchAmount' : 5,
	'limitSpeed' : true,
	'allowLoop' : false,
	'idleDelay' : 8000,
	'idleDirection' : 1,
	'toggleHint' : true,
	'togglePager' : true,
	'toggleFilter' : 'Filter',
	'togglePinboard' : 'View Pin Board',
	'toggleCarousel' : 'View Carousel',
	'toggleNext' : 'Next Slide',
